Yes, I have a Compact that I run suppressed about 98% of the time, works very well. The model you’re looking for to get the threaded version is 10199.

Just be aware that there is a difference in the full size M&P22 and the M&P22 Compact. The full size being an outsourced firearm produced for S&W, whereas the M&Pc is an in-house product and is far superior. Slightly confusing for anyone that doesn’t know the difference. The full size is tempting as it can be had with a threaded barrel as well and 12 round mags vs. the 10 round mags of the Compact, however the quality on the full size is near that of the P22, which is to say very poor.



Success always occurs in private, and failure in full view.

The problem I have with the SR22 is that the safety works backwards - up to fire. Mine is reliable with SV and HV.

As others have noted, my favorite in this size is the Smith & Wesson M&P Compact.

The Walther PPQ 22's work well, but the grip seems to be larger than the Smith.

All of the above can work with suppressors with the right adapter.

I thought the same thing about the SR-22 safety at first...but after carrying it for a while it , I started using the safety as a decocker only...think of it like a P series Sig...I always carry it hammer down, safety up....red showing...perfectly safe, it IS a double action auto..the only time I use the "safety" is to decock the action

Thanks everyone for your input. I am intrigued by the s&w m&p compact 22. I hope to go look at one soon.

I have the Plastic M&P Compact .22.
It is thus far 100% with fresh HV and with a few hundred fired to "break in" it ran some SV recently.

Does anyone know how to tell which is which? Serial # range? Are there certain markings on the gun or box?

I impulse bought one years ago when I was bored being off work after shoulder surgery. I sighted it in and didn't have any problems with it but the controls are so different from every other pistol I own I never really warmed up to it.
My Advantage Arms Glock conversion got a lot more use!

I have owned a Ruger SR22 for about 4 years, probably 8k rounds through it. I have used Remington, Winchester, America eagle, and several versions of Federal ammo. I have only had a handful of hiccups. Super happy with it and would buy again.

I'm not bashing Ruger. God knows how much money I've spent with Ruger over the last 40+ years.

With that being said
I've gotten so bitter or maybe disgusted is a better word with Ruger. 4 brand new Ruger's replaced due to un-repairable defects in the last 3yrs or so.
Over the last several years their quality has really gotten bad. Reading this about the SR22 really doesn't surprise me. It does with the Walter complaints though. I am so grateful most of my Ruger's are from when Bill Ruger was still at the helm running the show.

Another vote for the Smith compact. Having had all three the Smith was the only that worked best for my kids. Especially suppressed. It also helps them migrate to larger caliber Smiths but my kids went Glock then I switched them to HKs (both are lefties). They might go back to Glock if I get a gen5 in for them to try.



Not minority enough!

Since I’m new to these is there a different, metal compact 22?
